Laser Technology

What is the Cutting Edge laser?

The Cutting Edge laser is an advanced pain management treatment system. It uses a patented multiwave locked system (MLS) therapy laser to reduce pain, inflammation, and edema.

The Cutting Edge laser administers treatment using two therapeutic wavelengths. When combined, these wavelengths minimize the risk of thermal damage and produce greater anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects.

What conditions can the Cutting Edge laser treat?

At Orthopedics Unlimited, Dr. Rieber uses the Cutting Edge laser to treat various musculoskeletal problems, including:

  • Arthritis
  • Muscle strains, sprains, and tears
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Pre-and post-surgical pain
  • Scarring
  • Tendinitis
  • Bursitis

You might also benefit from treatment with the Cutting Edge laser if you experience a sports-related injury.

How does treatment with the Cutting Edge laser work?

Dr. Rieber administers treatment with the Cutting Edge laser during a quick, outpatient procedure. At the beginning of the appointment, you lie down on an exam table.

Dr. Rieber uses a handheld device to target the joint, bone, or muscle that’s causing your pain. He carefully moves the device back and forth over the affected area.

The device emits targeted laser energy. The light enters your damaged cells and stimulates intercellular activity. Over time, this process encourages the production of new, healthy cells, easing pain and inflammation.

During treatment, it’s normal to feel a warming sensation around the targeted treatment area. Appointments typically last 20-30 minutes. Once you’re finished, you can return to work and other routine activities right away.

When will I see results from Cutting Edge laser treatment?

The length of time that it takes to experience results from Cutting Edge laser treatment depends on the underlying issue and how closely you adhere to Dr. Rieber’s care plan.

Most people experience a significant improvement in their symptoms, including less swelling and pain, following just one or two sessions. To achieve the best possible results, Dr. Rieber recommends a series of regular treatments, especially if you have a chronic condition like arthritis.

Is treatment with the Cutting Edge laser safe?

Treatment with the Cutting Edge laser is safe and typically well-tolerated. Most people say the MLS laser is comfortable and soothing. In addition, many patients experience significant relief within minutes of their first session.
